Tomatin Scottish Series 1977
43 images Created 9 Apr 2010
The 1977 Tomatin Scottish Series was the first to be held on the Clyde in May with Olympic Triangles in Loch Fyne off the Fishing Village of Tarbert. The Start was at Gourock with an offshore round Ailsa Craig to Campbeltown, then a race to Tarbert before the Round the cans racing commenced. The offshore proved very light with most of the fleet not stopping in Campbeltown. Lots of names from the first series continue in the fleets today, with the overall winner going to Nick Stratton in Hydro-Djinn. Harry Turner captured these images using 6x4.5 colour film, that year Harry won the Scottish Sports Photography award with the first all colour portfolio of images. The gallery only contains a selection of the images due the the cost of transferring them from film to digital. Enjoy.
